    I'm working on some ground cover, and was wondering if anyone could help with an extremely visible section of the average layout. In the picture below, I have started with a sifted dirt / sand mix, with a little WS turf, small rocks and clumped foam. This is still wet here. This will be the first of a few "layers", hopefully creating a reasonable facsimile of what one might actually see on the ground.

    What do you do for ground cover? How do you do it? Hints? Tips?

    Hi Steve,
    What you have started is looking good, just carry on the same way. I also use real dead leaves (Brownish colour) from my garden all ground up in a blender plus real soil sifted for stones, and dried.

    What you've done so far looks great! Very natural.

    I'm a fan of the Woodland Scenics ground foam, but done in very moderate amounts and with very muted colors. Sometimes it can be overdone and laid on a little heavy, but with some testing, you can usually achieve the desired effect.

    You got the right idea! It's looking great, just keep on the way you are going and you will be fine.
